NY SAFE act a joke.

Here's what most people don't realize. So-called “assault weapons” were already illegal in NY state, and have been for a long time.

What they have done is CHANGE the definition, and in doing so, have rendered even ordinary sporting rifles and shotguns “assault weapons”.

“Assault weapon” is just some scary-sounding words to trick people into believing these laws are necessary. In reality, our rights are being trampled upon.'

Even if you're not a gun owner, every citizen of this state should be outraged as this horrific injustice.

Even more disgusting is the irrelevance of these laws. No “assault style” weapon was used in Newtown, even though this event was clearly the catalyst for ramming this legislation down our throats. It makes no sense at all.

These same laws are now being discussed at the federal level. We all need to stand up for ourselves and let it be known we cannot be stepped on in this way.
